DOWNINGTOWN, PA — Dr. Noreen O’Neill, director of Innovative Educational Services at the Chester County Intermediate Unit (CCIU), was awarded the Pennsylvania Association of School Administrators’ (PASA) Award of Achievement in Service to the Profession. This award honors commitment to excellence as demonstrated through notable service to education.

Some examples of the service to the profession award for which Dr. O’Neill is recognized include developing an effective professional development program for school district educators; demonstrating leadership in administrator preparation programs, school study councils or other professional development efforts; and promoting the education profession through research, writing and organizational service.

PASA’s special recognition awards are presented annually to recognize those who have made a significant contribution to the advancement of public education in Pennsylvania. Individuals are nominated for awards by their peers or staff members. The PASA Service to the Profession Award was sponsored by Horace Mann.

“Dr. O’Neill is so deserving of the PASA Service to the Profession award,” said Dr. George F. Fiore, CCIU executive director and president-elect of PASA. “Her dedication to public education as well as staff and student success is second to none. Noreen is the definition of a servant leader and I am fortunate to have the chance to work alongside her.”

Dr. O’Neill expressed her gratitude, stating, “I am grateful for the opportunity to support current and future educational leaders who will have a lasting impact on the students, schools and communities that they serve. I share PASA’s commitment to develop, support and serve successful school leadership, and I am honored to be recognized by such an esteemed organization.”
